Bargello II - completed

by brae  

I've finished the new coloration bargello stitching.  Interestingly, the one on the left took 5 hours and the one on the right took 4.25 hours, just like the first time around.  It must just take more time to plot the first one, whereas you can just copy for the second one.  The 40 count linen was rough in a couple of places for the second one, so it might look a little threadbare in spots once done.  It will just make it look old, so I'm not worried about it enough to redo it.

The colors go much better with the settee and rug.  :]

Now I just need to make the new benches.  :D

Oh yes! Something about the new colors, especially with the green sofa, makes me want to look at them again and again!

They do look much better with the rug and sofa. Very soothing I think.
I still love the others too.

The muted colors of your new bargello, perfectly unites the masculine pattern the rug with the feminine curves of your Victorian settee; A match made in heaven. :))

Hi Brae! You were absolutely right about the clash of colors with the first combination! These look so much more a match for the settee and the carpet and will no doubt provide a calm and unifying effect to the whole room in spite of the busy patterns! It is interesting to see how much more like a “lattice” this color combo turns out! Now I really want to see them together with the circle library! :)
